Aromaleigh: coupons and contests and colors (oh my!)

Aromaleigh: coupons and contests and colors (oh my!)

Posted on Tuesday, at

I placed an order for a few Aromaleigh colors today - just a few hours ahead of their deadline on a 25% discount!! Add to that an additional 25% off when I used their April Fool coupon, and I managed to save quite a nice amount on some gorgeous colors! I also ordered a few colors from their Spring Solstice collection - even though I did buy from that collection, I only got myself a few colors. Some of the others I...

Must Have Colors: The She Space

Must Have Colors: The She Space

This could be a little bit of a challenge because the bulk of TSS' products are out in limited-edition format only! I'll try and note whether a color is permanent, or LE. Hopefully the LE "must haves" will be brought back as part of Heather's Client Faves, so that others get a chance at them.

It isn't that I've had negative experiences at their stores. ...

EoTD: Spring on the Western Seaboard

Posted on Saturday, at

I have never heard or read the phrase “western seaboard”, though both written and spoken English is fairly comfortable with “eastern seaboard”. I've thought that was kind of weird for some time now.
